2005 Best Waxing

Bella Santé

Pouring hot wax onto skin sounds strange at best. Ripping it off seems worse. Yet women everywhere repeatedly submit themselves to this hair-removal process. Our hirsute pursuit takes us to Bella Santé, where we have actually dozed off during a thorough thigh-to-toe wax. That’s how gentle was the aesthetician, whose careful attention to detail left us beach ready and bruise free.
